Muskoka Brewery
Ontario, Canada

Style: Hefeweizen

Availability: Summer

Notes / Commercial Description:
Seasonally brewed and available in limited quantities, Muskoka Summer Weiss ("vice") is crafted with visions of summer in mind. Unfiltered and naturally hazy by design, the perfect balance of wheat, barley and subtle hopping makes this an intriguingly aromatic, flavourful and sessionable summer wheat beer. To release more flavour, agitate bottle slightly before opening. Cheers to you Summer!

A bit of a miss. cloyingly sweet throughout. Becomes a palate destroyer as it warms up. Leaving a margin for ingestion of nano- seconds. Beer as existential dare.

A - Transparent light yellow with a thin layer of white head.

S - Sweet banana and clove aromas with a big yeast presence.

T - The yeast shows up first but with an unpleasant flavour profile. Some banana and clove notes come through. A bit messy. The flavours conflict with each other. Unpleasant.

M - Light body. Moderate carbonation.

Serving Type: 500 mL Can

A- Hazy Pale Yellow with a lumpy 1 1/2 finger white head with decent retention. No lacing left behind.

S- Banana, Bubblegum, coriander, and cloves. Classic, well balanced Hefe aroma.

T- Wheat Malt with a great backing of Orange Peel. Refreshing.

M- Light Body with Moderate to High Carbonation. This brew feels a little thin but it does add to it's refreshing nature.

O- Solid Hefeweizen. Nothing that really stands out but that's what makes this brew and others similar so great. No frills with excellent drinkability.

Part of a surprisingly solid mix 12. Bananas and bubblegum, with wheat and bread notes; next to no head retention. The body is a little thin, but overall enjoyable. A very good hefeweizen. I'll be buying more

Pours perfect banana yellow. Hazy and lightly milky. White head that did not last. Nose is a bouquet of crisp wheat,banana and clove. A hint of bubblegum. It has a seductive but restrained herbal in the background. Taste is wheat , a little bread, thin body and a citrusy back note to the mid palate. The clove and spice stays balanced in the drink and so does the banana. That herbal is a lightness in the drink. Carbonation is active. Finishes a touch thin and with no real bitterness from hops. A light malt resonance and the fruit lingers a bit . Nice!

This is definitely pleasant, for the style. If this is your style, it's worth a go. Plenty of peach, pear and spice in this beer. I could see myself enjoying a couple of these, or using them to add flavour to cooking.

473ml can into nonic pint. enjoy before 02 sep 15. consumed on june 1, 2015

a: slightly hazy pale yellow with just over a finger of almost-white head

s: fresh bread, weak overripe bananas, slight bubblegum notes. just yeasty in general

t: huge bubblegum notes and lesser overripe bananas. wheaty bready malts emerge mid-palate but take a backseat to the lingering aforementioned flavours. finishes yeasty with no bitterness. lemon notes and more malt come out as the beer warms

m: nice light body with prickly medium carbonation

o: nothing overly interesting here but it's a tasty, truly-summer beer. let it warm up a bit
